I don't shave unless the area bugs me, and just makes it uncomfortable to be hairy. I personally don't care about body hair, if I where with a girl who never shaved, I'd have no problem. Maybe the bikini line slightly... but whatever, she can do what she wants with it all. Nothing wrong with some natural hair growth!
I don't shave anything. I think girls who don't shave are super attractive it shows power, courage, strength, and determination, and guys who like girls who don't shave are the best! It really shouldn't even matter. OUR BODY HAIR SERVES A PURPOSE. I used to be the person who always needed to have a close shave so I've seen both ends of the spectrum, but I'm SO glad that I grew out of that. Sometimes I'll wear a tank top and see people catch a glimpse of my underarms, or when i do hot yoga and we raise our arms up I see some people stare, but it really just makes me giggle. I will never be uncomfortable with it. My leg hairs do bother me sometimes, but only cause I feel like they aren't hairy enough! haha Kinda patchy and thing hair since I shaved so much when I was younger. I am Persian, so the hair is always there and it's super noticable but I really don't care. I love it. I could never imagine shaving again. I'd feel like a naked mole rat.
Sometimes I'll even dye my armpit hair crazy colors. ;)
You just figured this out for me! I always wondered why I didn't like the leg hair (but like the feel), it's because they are too patchy! Mine is just thinner dark hair all over the place, and since I have shaved in the past it no longer lies flat like a guys. I also have scars all over my legs - mainly from working with animals infested with fleas.
This thread should have pictures so I can see what other people are talking about - and what they are/aren't comfortable with.
Yes. We need a thread for people to post pics of their body hair! hahaha
Yeahhh :/ I'd really love my leg hair if it wasn't patchy. I too have bruises and scars on my legs from riding my bikes and other things. That's why we have hair to cover it! hehe
I have a friend who also doesn't shave.. much and she had nice leg hair! It is thick and lays flat. Unfortunate that since I was in 3rd grade I was forced to shave because I was conditioned to think it was wrong. My mom nags at me about my armpit hair and tells me it's gross... It's sad but I'll live! haha
My mom/brothers do the same. As soon as my mom sees it she just asks 'when are you going to shave?' with a disgusted look on her face. My brother just shakes his head or says 'that's disgusting.' Good thing I don't care much about my family or I may take it offensively.
My hair doesn't cover up my scars. :( But I guess I'll just have to get over it. I feel more comfortable wearing guys basketball shorts out with the hairy legs, then I do wearing girl cut jean shorts. Maybe I will just start wearing those out..except when I need to bus or have a meet&greet lol. Gotta work my way up!
I'm sorry your family feels that way. At least you maintain your personal style and thats good.
I hate body hair... well not all of it. But I need to shave my legs, pits, and.. bikini area. And I will never not shave it. I don't go over-board and shave my arms and stuff. But my partner would need to be clean shaved just like me or I wouldn't be able to handle it. There's another reason to be a lesbian. :P
I'm still debating whether or not I want to shave my bikini line. I've seen girls with hair coming out of their swimsuits and it's kinda just whatever. We were born with it man!!!!!!!
I guess we'll find out when summer comes around haha.
But seriously. I love armpit hair.
Try wearing boxer-type swimsuit bottoms, or spandex female boxers. This is what I used to do for comfort, and it also covers up all the hair. P)
Thanks! I'll try that Kristi.
but I don't care if I cover it! hahaha
Maybe for the first few days, or at certain places I suppose. I'd rather have hair on my line than bumps and red spots...
And on a guy note, I know tons and tons of guys who like body hair. Most of my guy friends think it's badass that I can beat them in an armpit hair contest! haha
Lol my fascination with armpit hair started out years ago. Decided to not shave for a whole summer to see if I could beat my brothers hair length. Finally managed it this year. :) ..not really sure if it is actually longer, but it definitely grows in thicker. Most guys I have noticed have really patchy or thin armpit hair.
true. girls I know tend to have thicker armpit hair. I'm SURE it's for a reason. Idk why society started shaving it?!
